As this year’s GAA Hurling All-Ireland Championship reaches its climax, the GAA Museum Legends Tour Series continues with Galway’s Joe Connolly.

Joe played hurling with his local club Castlegar and was a member of the Galway senior inter-county team from 1976 until 1984. In 1980, he captained the Galway side that met Limerick in that year’s decider and after winning, he delivered one of the most memorable All-Ireland acceptance speeches the GAA has seen. Here is your opportunity to find out his thoughts on that and many other days.

The Legends Tour Series, which started in 2008, has been a huge hit with followers of both football and hurling, providing visitors with a unique ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour through the hands-on perspective of their hurling and Gaelic football heroes.

These special tours provide fans with an unforgettable opportunity to hear memories and anecdotes first hand from players who thrilled Croke Park crowds and became household names in the process.

The All-Ireland Legends Tour with Joe Connolly is scheduled to take place on Saturday 8th September at 12.00   The tour includes a trip to the recently-refurbished GAA Museum, which is home to many exclusive exhibits, including the original Liam MacCarthy Cup, as well as the new temporary exhibition ‘GAA - A Global Phenomenon’, which is now open running until Spring 2013.

Booking is advised as places are limited.  Find out more and book tickets.
